Conn. Parents Fear Cuts' Impact on Lives of Their Adult Children

GREENWICH, Conn. – Dozens of parents filled the front room of Greenwich residents David and Lynn Arezzini on Saturday morning to speak out about the state's failure to fund the Department of Developmental Services, which provides services that so many of their adult children depend on.
The group met to hear stories from parents who are finding out that their adult children with mental disabilities such as autism may not be getting any more state assistance for independent living. Many were told that their adult children, who have been living independently, would have to move back home.
